Summer Is Here! 

That's for sure. 

LACBC would like to thank Sierra Nevada and the Fly Rides crew for helping us all welcome the summer in our own backyard. We’re grateful to have reconnected with cool people, ride bikes in the mountains, and camp overnight under the glow of the moon in the Angeles National Forest. 

We at LACBC are committed to facilitating more experiences with bikes, people, and nature as we acknowledge the positive impacts all three can have on our mental and physical health. As the pandemic drags on, our camping trip motivates us to continue to do the work to make LA’s streets safe and equitable for everyone. 

We hope you get to make your way outside this summer. If you do -  snap a photo, and post it to Twitter/Instagram with #GoSummerContest and @sierranevada for your chance to win gear and more from Yeti, Osprey, Campfire Defender, Campspot, and Sierra Nevada.

Click the button below to read a note from Metro's new CEO

There's more frequene service on our County's bus lines and light rail trains. Following some confusion, Wiggins also clarified that Metro's stance is that they are not quoting fares at this time and will be clarifying this with their bus operators. 

LACBC looks forward to working with Wiggins at Metro and building upon the partnership developed at Metrolink. We look forward to collaborating with Countywide partners to lift barriers to transit, including making transit free for all and decriminalizing laws that are used to harass People of Color. 


Bike Culver City Pride Ride

We want to congratulate our LACBC Culver City Chapter, Bike Culver City, for hosting such an amazing Pride Ride over the weekend! Forming community around a love for cycling and our fellow neighbors is at the heart of our organization. There's no better feeling than being able to provide a safe space for people to come together and celebrate being exactly themselves.




State level updates with local implications


No on AB 371- Save Bike-Share!

Bike-share systems benefit California communities. Bike-sharing provides essential last-mile transportation connections, gives people an easy way to try riding a bike, and makes our streets safer for all riders. 

Yet legislators in Sacramento are on track to kill this vital service. AB 371 would impose an unfair insurance requirement on bike and scooter sharing systems that would put every bike-share operator in California, both public and private, for-profit and non-profit, out of business.

Contact your California Senator today and tell them to vote NO on AB 371, to Save Bike-Share! 

For more information, check out the CalBike campaign page.
